PURPOSE: It is unknown whether cilostazol pretreatment reduces postprocedural myonecrosis (PPMN). Cilostazol pretreatment reduces PPMN after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 120 patients with stable angina scheduled for elective PCI were randomly assigned to a 7-day pretreatment with Cilostazol (200 mg/day) or to a control group. Creatine kinase-MB (CK-MB) and cardiac troponin I (cTnI) levels were measured at baseline and at 6 and 24 hours after PCI. The primary end-point was the occurrence of PPMN, defined as any CK-MB elevation above the upper normal limit (UNL). Aspirin and clopidogrel were co-administered for 7 days before PCI, and resistance to these agents was then assayed using the VerifyNow System. RESULTS: There was no difference in baseline characteristics between the final analyzable cilostazol (n=54) and the control group (n=56). Despite a significantly greater % inhibition of clopidogrel in the cilostazol group (39±23% versus 25±22%, p=0.003), the incidence of PPMN was similar between the cilostazol group (24%) and the control group (25%, p=1.000). The rate of CK-MB elevation at ≥3 times UNL was also similar between the two groups (6% versus 5%, p=0.583). The incidence of cTnI increase over the UNL or to 3 times the UNL was not different between the two groups. There was no significant difference in terms of the rate of adverse events during follow- up, although the cilostazol group showed a tendency to have a slightly higher incidence of entry site hematoma. CONCLUSION: This trial demonstrated that adjunctive cilostazol pretreatment might not significantly reduce PPMN after elective PCI in patients with stable angina.
